Upgrading a cluster and installing new software can be a challenge, especially when you don’t have many resources at your disposal. The Institute of Aircraft Design in Stuttgart installed Bright Cluster Manager to greatly enhance the usability of its high performance computing (HPC) cluster.

What's more, the graphical user interface (GUI) allows users to handle management and configuration tasks more efficiently and it is very easy to train people to manage the cluster.
